catastrophic. it se this single greatest deal against america. >> the difference divides the republican 2016 field. cruz would get rid of the iran deal on day one he's in office. >> any commander in chief worthy of defending this nation should be prepared to stand up on january 20th, 2017 and rip to shreds this this catastrophic deal. >> trump would not do that. ripping up is tough. don't forget we lost our so-called a allies in the deal. they are all making money. we're not making anything. they are selling misles and getting involved with iran. using the money we gave to iran. i will do something that will be very strong and believe me, iran will come back and they will be much different. >> reporter: if the horse is out of the barn, what are you going to do about it? >> you are going to have to
watch. it will be a whole different thing. >> no specifics because he doesn't want to telegraph it to the iranians but he made this trumpesque promise to the crowd. >> we will have so much winning if i get elected that you may get bored with winning. believe me. >> reporter: also at the rally the woman who says she would like to serve in trump's presidential cabinet, sarah palin. >> only in an orwellian and obama world full of springly fairy dust blown from atop of his unicorn as he is peeking through a pink kaleidoscope would he see victory or safety in america this this treaty. >> dana bash, cnn, capitol hill. >> hillary clinton shows her support for the nuclear deal. >> in a speech in washington clinton said she deal should be only a starting point when it comes to dealing with iran. >>. >> it's not enough to just say
yes to this deal. of course it is isn't. we have to say yes and. yes and we will enforce it with vigor and vigilance. yes, and we will embed it in a broader strategy to confront iran's bad behavior in the region. yes and we will begin from day one to set the conditions so iran knows it will never be able to get a nuclear weapon, not during the term of the agreement, not after, not ever. >> she also said the nuclear deal protects israel and she want withes to strengthen that relationship if she is elected. >> u.s. secretary of state john kerry says a buildup of russian troops in syria will only make the situation there worse. >> syrian president bashar al-assad isn in ally to moscow. the u.s. wants him gone. a u.s. official monitoring the situation says russia has not provided a color answer on its intentions.
>> if true and borne out, those reports would be -- could lead to greater violence and more, even more instability in syria. and we're not helpful at all to what eventually the international community should be trying to achieve inside of syria. >> i'm concerned about the reports in syria. that will not contribute to resolve the conflict. i think it is important to find a political solution to the conflict in syria. >> russian foreign ministry spokeswoman did not rule out additional russian actions to assist al-assad's government. she said in a skamt statement "if there is a need from our side for additional measures to increase support for the anti-terrorist fight this question will be reviewed in an appropriate way". a disturbing new claim, isis
says it is holding two more foreign nationals hostage and wants ransom money for their safe release. the two men, one chinese and one norwegian aretized as being "for sale" in the latest edition of the terror group's on-line magazine. >> both are dressed in yellow jump suits and wearing a tag with their names and i.d. number. beneath the images this chilling warning appears "this is a limited time offer." one norway's president confirms one of her citizens is held hostage. >> reporter: the norwegian hostage was kidnapped at the end of january this year. since then he has been held captive by various groups but today we have reason to believe he's being held captive by isil. the kidnappers have put in a series of demands for considerable amounts and ransom. >> she says her country will not bow down to the terror group's
demands. > . denmark closed a major highway as hundreds of regees are trying to reach sweden. they are hoping to make it more than 200 miles away. denmark has rekrenlly cut benefits for refugees. european leaders are considering a new plan for mandatory country by country quotas to take in refugees from the middle east. senior international correspondent reports. >> as the european union grapples with the massive influx of refugees the union is trying to find a common voice to address the issue. the policy speech, jean claude junker took them to task. he said at this point in time, the european union is failing to
address the issue and he said the problem was there were too little european values and too little union involved in the current approach. he said that all of the politicians involved should take the plight of the people coming to heart and put themselves in the shoes of the refugees. >> this is not the time to take flight. it is a time of humanity and human dignity. we europeans, all of us, i thought before, all of us we should remember that europe is a continent. we are nearly everyone a has at one time been a refugee. >> of course while his speech was emotional, it had to be rooted in the realities of european politics. those politics remain divide. among nations like germany, also
like austria and italy and greece who are treating it as a humanitarian issue and saying these refugees are go ing to come to the european union in any case and therefore need to be cared for. on the other hand, many eastern european countries and denmark and hung hungary are treating it as a border control yirk and all of these problems and concerns need to be taken in top account. he suggested redistributing 120,000 refugees to various countries across the european union and called for mandatory quotas for taking in refugees. however, the countries that want to be restrictive on immigration, their concerns were talked about, as well. he said the european union needs to do more to fortify and patrol its borders to make sure that at least in the long run migration to the european union is not uncontrolled but can be better controlled by the countries that are out on the outer fringes of
the european union. on top of all of this, it became clear in his speech that none of these problems are going to be solved unless the flow of migrants to europe is solved, as well with. he said the european union needs to do more to help to solve conflicts like the ones in syria and iraq and also try to get economic progress going in places in africa as well. cnn, berlin. fred eluded to it there but we want to look at the proposed quotas from the european commission president. look at this. the plan seeks to relocate 16 a,000 refugees from hungary, greece and italy. them greatest number would move to germany and france, followed by spain and poland with the rest spread over 18 other eu nations. >> britain and denmark can choose if they want to take part
in the plan. british prime minister david cameron says his government will come up with its own strategy for dealing with the issue. >> the answer is not quotas. all quotas will do is play in to the hands that exploit vulnerable refugees. of course europe has to reach its own answers for those countries that are part, brint should have our own border and ability to make our own sovereign decisions about. this our approach is to say yes, we are a humanitarian nation and will take 20,000 syrians but we want a solves the problems in syria, that sees a new government in there. we have to address all of the issues. >> secretary of state john kerry says the u.s. wants to play a leadership role in dealing with humanitarian issues, particularly with the refugees. >> he met wednesday with members of the judiciary committee to discuss what the u.s. can do.
>> we have committed to increasing the number of refugees that we take, and we are looking hard at the number we can specifically manage with respect to the crisis in syria and europe in their migration to date. >> the u.s. says 3 0,000 people have crossed the mediterranean sea in to europe so far this year. now a scary situation happening along a busy highway in the u.s. state of the arizona. i have friends and relatives who take this highway every day. >> i'm from arizona. >> ten vehicles have been shot at in the last two weeks in phoenix. >> officials don't know who's doing it. they have not been able to stop it. one person we know has been injured in all of this. no one has been killed. officials say the victims are not connected and the shootings appear to be random. in the meantime, the head of the arizona department of public safety is calling these incidents domestic terrorism and says the shooter is a coward.
listen to this. >> i think you have to be incredibly concerned about the safety of yourself or others that traverse that roadway. all of these acts are potentially lethal encounters. when you are shooting in to a moving vehicle with unwitting occupants. they are lethal encounters. we don't have a suspect in mind yet. we will find who this is and hopefully we get to them before someone is seriously injured or killed. somebody knows who this is. somebody is very aware of who this is. just out of humanistic instincts, you have to call and come forward. there should be no benevolence for this person or apathy. this is a cold-blooded crime. this person's a coward. >> it's all recent. the first shootings happened last month when drivers reported projectiles hitting a

>> fire services on the way. >> reporter: british airways pilot is aborts takeoff as fire envelopes the left engine. inside 159 passengers and 13 crew members scramble to safety. >> i looked up and flames seemed to be twice the height of the aircraft. this is before the fire trucks arrived. >> reporter: not everyone got out unharmed. 27 people have been treated at the hospital with minor injuries. >> we werer were just gaining speed to take off and heard a big thud. i opened up the cover of my window and saw flames on the engine. >> reporter: a source tells cnn the plane's fire suppression equipment was deployed but failed to put out the fire. investigators are looking in to whether a fuel line map r may have ruptured causing the fire to spread. the crew's quick response helped
to keep it from an accident. >> i told people run as far as you can get. if it does explode it will go some distance. >> the fire comes a month after this delta plane had an engine flame out on the tarmac in cincinnati. no one was injured. as for the boeing 777, it has a stellar safety record. put in to service in 1994, there are now 1300 in use. in 21 years, only six other 777s have had serious incidents according to airsafe.com. in 2008, both engines failed on the 777 ending in a crash landing at heathrow airport. everyone on board survived. in 2011, an electrical fire broke out 0 under the cockpit of an egypt air flight at the departure gate. no one hurt. three people died in 2013 when an asian ya airlines flight crashed landing in san francisco after the plane slammed in to a sea wall. the ntsb determining pilot error
was to blame. the other two incidents the world knows all too well. malaysia airlines flight 370 disappearing over the indian ocean. no cause has been determined. and mh17 ending in disaster. that boeing 777 shot out of the sky over ukraine. it must be said that nearly half of the major incidents with triple seven had nothing to do with the safety of the plane itself. making it one of the safest aircrafts out there. but when passengers see incidents like what happened in las vegas it can certainly rattle their confidence. >> that is our sara sidner reporting there. another big story we are following for you. lebanese leaders reached a deal to end the garbage crisis that caused an uproar and weeks of protests. >> the plan allowed municipalities to manage their own wastes and established two land fills. the protests began after frustration over government

slurs against them at least twice during the game. they say that told that to the assistant coach. >> the students allege that an assistant coach said that guy needs to pay for cheating us or words to that affect. a former player at jon jay high school had been placed on leave. cnn tried to contact him for comment but so far he is not responding. watts' attorney says the players' allegations of racial slurs are not just false but a classic case of blame the victim. he said that watts suffered a heinous and brutal assault and added he is under medical care. they are investigating whether the two should face criminal charges. they have already been suspended from the team and school. >> we will treat it as an assault on a school official. >> time for a short break here on cnn. when we come back, chinese leaders weigh in on the country's slowing economy. we will tell you about the

a heard a major promise from china's premier about his country's slowing economy and economic position in the world. >> that's right. li says china will never resort to a currency war. that's after the yuan was deevaled last month. a move some think was designed to boost the country's exports. it brought up the possibility of retaliatory monetary actions in the region. try saying that ten times fast. >> you did a good job, errol. china is trying to ease global fears about the slowing economy. andrew stevens is joining us live from the world economic forum in china. thank you for being with us.
you listened to his speech. he talked about growth in china continuing at a reasonable range and possible reforms. i'm curious, what stood out to you in the speech? anything that i guess in investors will latch on to, do you think? >> i think he came out swinging with. he was positive about the economy. he made a fairly pragmatic case as to why he's confident about the economy. certainly the people i spoke to after that said it that was a realistic assessment of where china is. by definition, that almost says the gyrations, the wild volatility we have seen in relation to where the chinese is, in investors minds the massive moves on the stock market have actually been overdone. he does say, quite clearly, there are major problems to
confront. that there are reforms that need to be carried out. overall, he says very clearly on the right track. he describes the chinese economy pretty boldly as shock resistant and resilient. this is part of what he had to say. listen to this. >> we will not be swayed by short term fluctuations in the economy. we will not take it lightly either. we are taking necessary measures of targeted discretional and control for the purpose of mitigating volatility. if there are signs that economy is sliding out of the proper range, we have adequate capability to deal we with the situation. the chinese economy will not head for a hard landing.
>> he is very emphatic on that point, no hard landing. he said we are not in a currency war. remember, zain, this is devaluation of the yuan by the chinese government, this had been telegraphed sometime ago in that they are committed to a reform process which includes making the yuan more market friendly or market driven, if you like. the timing was interesting given the fact that it came as china's economy did seem to slow, which would give it an export boost or could give it an export boost. there was suspicion about the timing. the broader picture is from the china, which is echoed pretty much by everyone at the delegation at the world economic forum is that yes, it's been a tough couple of months. longer term they are okay. one point, which he pointed out, they have 7% growth in the first half of the year. let's assume you believe that
number. we're talking about a $10 trillion economy. so for a $10 trillion economy to grow that's not that much more than the u.s. economy. if that to grow by 7%, that is a massive amount of real growth on the ground. this is a big economy now. when we talk about 10% growth before, it wasn't the same size overall economy. to continue to do that when it is much bigger says this is an economy which is still moving ahead and reasonably swiftly. >> the key point you made there, andrew is if you believe that 7% number. thank you so much. all right. we want to bring you some developing -- a developing story coming to us from japan north of tokyo. some live pictures being broadcast to us at this moment where we can show you this is the river that burst its banks because of days of heavy rain in
the region. 90,000 people have been ordered to evacuate. one person is missing. as you get a sense of those cars submerged pedram javaheri told us last hour it doesn't take a lot of water to pick up the cars and move them. you can see how serious it is. as you get a sense of these picture and again one person missing, 90,000 ordered to evacuate because here the river kenu has burst its banks. the camera panning around trying to get a sense of the scope and size of this. at this moment japanese officials are doing the same. wef will continue to watch this footage and gather information as it comes in to cnn.
we certainly want to show you that in realtime as we track some of the biggest stories in the world. we'll come back to it later. >> pictures say it all. you saw the cars submerged, flooding in to the houses, as well. cars literally picked up and trash cans, as well. >> scary stuchl we will bring in our meteorologist here. severe storms in southern italy has turned in to a raging river. pedram javaheri is joining us with more on that. >> that incredible story as well. i want to touch on from tokyo in and around that region 20 inches of rainfall has come down in tokyo and the vicinity in the past 24 to 48 hours from a trio of storm systems that impacted the region. we had major storms cruise through sicily and the southern area there across the central med. look at video out of the region. four inches came douchblt a area that is mountainous.
narrow. it doesn't take much to pick up vehicles and carry them downstream. i want to show you the satellite imagery. we know that across the region, near sicily one of the shipping vessels reported 110 mile an hour winds off shore. associated with this powerful storm that was across this region. so, i want to show you what happened with all of this. when you have three, four inches of rainfall and you are talking about this happening in a short time period, it does not take much to move somebody. in fact, when you talk about a vehicle potentially, the water up just about six inches or 150 millimeters, that is enough force to knock a person off their feet. move it up to 24 inches, 600 millimeters, now you are putting enough force to move a vehicle. in fact at these levels, water is the speed at three miles an hour or essentially the speed that you walk. that exerts 20 pounds of force on an object. you take that speed up to six miles an hour. and now you are talking about putting in 80 pounds of force. that exponential growth in the speed and force it exerts is significant when it comes to
what occurs over the region when it comes to flooding and that's why in the united states we often talk about turn around and don't drown. in the united states severe weather output as far as fatalities, flooding is the number one killer in the u.s. with half occurring with people stuck in their vehicles. okay. i want to take you and show you what the noaa has released for the summer of 2015 across the u.s. hottest summer on record for the states of o other and washington. much above average for everyone else. areas not indicate ready normal range. parts of the midwest seeing temperatures below average so far this summer. we do have heat advisories and heat warngz across the area for 14 million people across california. san francisco temperatures in the upper 80s, dropping to the 70s. los angeles closing in 100 degrees. guys, on the last note out of california we have picked up much-needed rainfall, a half inch in anaheim and downtown and l.a.x. in particular picking up 1/10 of an inch of rainfall. this is the first time it rained
there in over two months. good news there. >> thank you very much. we quickly want to cross back to live pictures coming to us from the river where we just witnessed this helicopter send an official down lift to rescue a person. one person is missing. 90,000 ordered to evacuate. according to local media, officials don't have a full grasp of the sdocope of all of. this we will take a short break here on cnn and be back in a moments. we stop arthritis pain, so you don't have to stop. tylenol® 8hr arthritis pain has two layers of pain relief. the first is fast. the second lasts all day. we give you your day back. what you do with it is up to you. tylenol®.

get underway from we witnessed one man, who was on the roof of his home with only the clothes on his back waiting to be airlifted. witnessed another person who rescuers managed to take out of a top floor window, as well. here's the information we have so far. as errol said, one person missing. 90,000 people so far have been ordered to evacuate. once again, the river banks of the river burst and japanese officials say they can't grasp the full scale of the situation with of this emergency. we know that 20 inches of rain of ibaraki north of tokyo. these are images we have seen earlier. you can see -- >> incredible there. >> people inside the home. >> the strong powerful water rushes behind them. officials are doing what they can to get resources to this area. japanese prime minister shinzo abe has warned of unprecedented heavy rains even after this.
there you have a sense of the power and force of the water. it seems to have demolished. >> a home seen carried away in the waters there. incredible. >> they have requested the dispatch of the japanese self defense forces to help in rescue operations that could be what we are witnessing already. an incredibly frightening situation for all residents here. you can see what we witnessed moments ago. one of the many aerial rescues under way right now. all of this north of tokyo in what is an unpleasant situation with, a river there bursting its banks causing quite an emergency. >> i think what is really worrying about this is we may see more of this. we hear that the heavy rains are moving slowly north and perhaps there could be more flooding thursday and friday in other areas of japan. heavy rains could be moving slowly north. 20 inches of rain, we're told, have fallen north of tokyo in an area called ibaraki.
once again, one person missing. one person missing and 90,000 people in this area have been ordered to evacuate sfwlchlt we will continue to watch this closely in the coming hours here on cnn >> okay. that does it for us. thank you for being with us. i'm zhain asher. >> i'm errol barnett. rosemary church is joining us next as we continue our breaking coverage. stay with us.
t w --vcaptions by vitac -- www.vitac.com massive floods in japan. homes washed away and people stranded on rooftops. migrants stuck at the train station. and later, republicans attack the iran nuclear deal and may have found a new way to defeat it. hello and welcome everyone to our viewers here in the united states and of course all around the world. i'm rosemary church. >> i'm errol barnett. thanks for joining us. this is "cnn newsroom."
and we begin this hour with breaking news in japan where rescue efforts are underway right now after days of heavy rainfall that's triggered widespread flooding. >> at this stage, reuters reports that 90,000 people have been ordered to evacuate after river banks burst in cities north of tokyo. local media recorports the floog is so widespread they have not started to grasp how dire the flooding it. the water has washed away a number of homes. one person is missing and we saw moments ago military helicopters air lifting residents one by one in what is certainly a frightening situation for so many people. >> we want to go to pedram javaheri right now who has some more information on what is
happening here. we understand one person is missing at this point. could very well be more. what information do you have? >> this is a pattern we have seen set up for so many days now. the month of september is the wettest time of year in tokyo. they get 8 inches this month, 210 millimeters of rainfall. a trio of weather patterns lined up. of course we have a tropical feature back to the south that has cruised by the area as well and another tropical storm will come in from the north. so we've had three weather patterns produce this rainfall that is in some spots over 20 inches of rainfall. we are talking about half a meter coming down in two to three days. any amount of water that even if "n" one that is as prepared for disasters. 112 volcanos and 12 typhoons every year.
and this much rainfall is a very dangerous scenario and laying the land of the rainfall totals, 300 plus millimeters. a foot in tokyo itself. the monthly average is 8 inches. and the problem is it's coming down in successive nature. the reservoirs and rivers are not going to be able to keep all of the water in place and another tropical feature tries to cruise by in a couple of days and it does enhance the rainfall when it comes to additional rainfall. another possibility of 100 to 150 millimeters. half of what has caused the problem could come down still over the next couple days with the storms passing by the areas around a densely populated and mountainous area in japan. >> that is a lot of rain that people have had to deal with. we have seen people stranded on rooftops waiting to be rescued. we will stop back in for an
update soon. let's get more information from the ground. our will ripley joins us on the phone from tokyo. we understand this is all happening as pedram just said in a highly populated area. just bring us up to speed hour urgent the situation is right there for many people. >> it is a very urgent situation. the people along the kinugawa river has a large population. there are elderly residents there. there are at least three elderly people who have been hurt. you think about the communities in the outlying area of japan that is where the age population live and they live in these homes that are not always up to the building code use see in places like the capital. that's why we are seeing the scary pictures of the homes
floating along here and people who try to get up to the upper level floors to evacuate. of course you have to think of people with limited mobility and the dire situation they are in right now. we received a new number. now more than 171,000 people have been ordered to evacuate this particular area. this is counting both ibaraki and tochigi prefecture. 171,000 people and that number is expected to go up as authorities continue to assess the scale of this flooding. it truly is quite a serious situation. the tropical storm etau moved through yesterday. a lot of us received typhoon warnings on our phones and it was followed quickly by heavy rain that did cause minor street flooding here in tokyo. but is it in the rural outlying areas that are especially prone to flooding disasters and that is apparently what we are seeing unfold right now and we still
don't know the scope of it. >> and what adds to the danger here, will, is japan's weather agency warning that because the system that brought the water in the first place is moving so slowly and deliberately there is a fear for more flooding and landslides in places that are more mountainous, the japan defense forces are being dispatched to some of these areas to do what you mentioned there, help rescue those unable to kind of help themselves. you say there are many elderly people in this part of the country. and so we wonder if the country has enough resources. we are watching these pictures from earlier of the helicopters doing air lifts from a populated area. what kind of resources are been thrown at this? >> reporter: i will say, errol, japan is an island nation that has seen many natural disasters, earthquakes, floods, typhoons,
and the self-defense force here, the japanese military is very well equipped to respond quickly to this sort of a situation. that's what we are seeing on the ground right now. without alarming people we also need to point out that there is also the fukushima concern that some of the flooding in the area around the fukushima nuclear plant which is run by the tokyo power company, tepco, they have been storing the water from "n" these above ground storage tanks and there is a concern about what would happen in a flooding situation? is this contaminated water going to be released into the environment. what we do not know what is happening at fukushima right now, that is something that the authorities are monitoring closely and we will as well in addition to the immediate needs of these people who have had to
climb up to their second story balconies to get help. >> will ripley on the line with us with some new information. now 171,000 people in this region north of tokyo ordered to evacuate because of the urgent pictures that we are witnessing here. homes being swept away, people being air lifted and one missing at this hour. we will continue to track this story in the hours ahead. we move to europe's migrant crisis now and it's on to sweden for middle eastern migrants stuck on a train all day in denmark. crowds of supporters sheered the asylum seekers who didn't want to be forced to register in denmark. >> danish authorities decided to let them leave the train. volunteers drove them on the
two-hour trip to sweden which has been more welcoming to refugees. >> i'm feeling happy. we're all happy because we live -- we don't want to stay here. >> not everyone has been so lucky. about 200 waited in germany as danish authorities closed rail links with germany until further notice. >> denmark has not been the most accommodating country for migrants. the government recently cut benefits for asylum seekers by up to 50%. refugees got a warm welcome in munich, germany, hundreds of police, medical personnel and volunteers have turned out as people stream in from hungary, austr austria and other countries. >> most are fleeing syria and iraq. more than 1,000 people have signed up to help and welcome refugees.
>> so lots of people are just really happy that they can do something even if it's only the small thing of first relief or just actually welcoming the people, smiling at them and saying after your long odyssey of bad flight and after all the stress you've gone through in your home countries you are welcome here and we want to welcome you. >> reaction is more divided in some parts of germany. supporters of an extreme right wing party marched wednesday against what they call asylum abuse and foreign infiltration. >> one city council says that some people want to help the refugees find a home and build a new life. others are scared of foreigners with a different country arriving in their town. germany is not the only country who is split over how to handle the crisis. >> the issue is threatening to
drive a wedge through parts of europe. >> an enthusiastic welcome for a wave of middle eastern migrants arriving in austria over the weekend. for a grateful minority, the promise of safety and sanctuary. and for many, reprieve from the hardship faced in their journey through neighboring hungary, whose authorities have been widely criticized for their handling of the recent influx. but why the stark change? attitudes have differed between eastern and western europe since wartime that is partly owing to the lack of economic opportunity offered by the communist regimes of eastern europe. those attitudes were visible when the hungarian prime minister stated he did not want to accept muslim refugees. >> translator: nobody has the right to tell us to change and live together with a large number of muslims. >> reporter: he is not alone his
counterpart stands firmly against attempts to impose immigration owe thats. >> translator: when terrorists are grouping in syria how are we to distinguish them without any controls. let's differentiate things when it is voluntary and natural the government can support it. but i refuse it when someone tells us to receive people we don't know anything about. >> reporter: tensions elsewhere prove that other parts of western europe aren't as accommodating. in france ethnic violence and controversy over head scarves have plagued the country in recent years. switzerland banned the instruction of minnarets since 2009. >> are we divisioning between christians, jews, muslims?
this continent has made the -- distinguish on the basis of religious criteria. there is no religion or belief or philosophy. >> reporter: while the fleers of hardship may have much to celebrate upon arrival in austria and germany and their supporters are abundant, finding acceptance and tolerance may be more difficult than simply crossing a border. several european leaders believe the only way to solve the refugee crisis is by tackling it at the source in syria where so many have fled from isis and civil war. >> france's prime minister talked to cnn about his government's intention to launch air strikes. >> translator: all these matters, which of course, strike minds and opinions, migration, refugees, which we have to once again receive in a generous way in the name of our values, this
crisis cannot be solved just by receiving them. it has to be dealt with at source. these are very complicated and difficult subjects and of course in syria so long as we haven't found a political solution, so long as we haven't destroyed this terrorist group or islamic state, so long as we haven't got rid of bashar al assad we won't find a solution. isis says they are holding two more foreign nationals hostage. the two men, one chinese and one norwegian are advertised as for sale in the latest edition of the terrorist group's online magazine. >> translator: the government takes this case very seriously. we cannot and will not give into pressure from terrorists and
criminals. norway does not pay ransoms. that is a principle we cannot give up in meetings with terrorists. >> some governments have handed over hefty sums of money for the return of their citizens. in a startling new report from the daily beast intelligence analysts say their reports on al qaeda in syria were altered and manipulated by senior officials. >> and 50 analysts formally filed complaints and the pentagon's inspector general has opened an investigation. according to the daily beast, two senior analysts at the u.s. mald central command accuse those high up in the chain of command suggest the reports were manipulated to support a public narrative that the u.s. is winning the fight. now there was a lot of movement in washington on

welcome back, everyone. u.s. lawmakers will debate three different republican resolutions in the coming day aimed at curbing the iran nuclear deal. republicans hope to finish voting by friday. the resolutions allege secret side deals regarding nuclear inspections and say president barack obama broke the law by not disclosing details of the deal. >> now a spokesman for the white house says if congress does not vote by september 17th the deal will automatically go into effect. democrats say they have enough votes to protect the agreement. now demands for congress to kill the deal were loud and clear during a rally outside the capitol. >> sarah palin and ted cruz and donald trump pulled no punches. >> we are led by very, very stupid people.
very, very stupid people. >> reporter: true to form, donald trump boiled down his opposition to the iran deal to basics and blunt talk. >> they rip us off, they take our money, they make us look like fools. >> reporter: trump was invited by one of his rivals for the white house, ted cruz. >> i want to thank my friend donald trump for joining us today. >> reporter: cruz has embraced him especially when he can draw a crowd. >> this is catastrophic. is it the single greatest national security threat facing america. >> reporter: but they disagree on what to do about it. it is a difference that divides the field. cruz would get rid of the deal on day one he is in office. >> any commander-in-chief worthy
of defending this nation should be prepared to stand up on january 20th 2017 and rip to shreds this catastrophic deal. >> this will be a totally different deal. we lost all of our so-called allies in the deal. they are all selling missiles and getting involved with iran and using the money we gave to iran. i will do something that will be very strong and believe me, iran will come back and they will be much different. >> reporter: in the horse is out of the barn what do you do about it? >> you just watch. >> reporter: no specifics, he insists but he made this trumpesque promise to the crowd. >> we will have so much win for i get elected that you may get bored with winning. believe me. >> reporter: also at the rally the woman who would like to serve in trump's presidential
cabinet, sarah palin. >> only in an orwellian obama world full of sprinkly ferry dust blown from atop his unicorn as he is peeking through a pink kaleidoscope would he see victory or safety for america in this treaty. earlier we were telling you about a report from the daily beast, u.s. intelligence analysts say they reports were dramatically altered by senior officials to make isis appear weaker than they are. for more on this report, cnn military analyst rick francona joins us now. you have written extensively about whether the u.s. government is lying to us about the war against isis and now we see the daily beast reporting on more than 50 spies formally complaining about their reports on isis to make the situation
look better than it is. what is going on here exactly? >> i think it is fairly obvious to anyone who is listening to what the pentagon and state department are saying and watching the news reports coming out of the media in the middle east. the u.s. media, the isis media. everybody is reporting, and they are totally different. the u.s. is painting this rosie picture of containing and degrading and pushing isis back on its heels and what we're seeing from isis is the ability to move troops, take cities, and continue to attract new members. it is just atted sos with what we're hearing from the united states. one has to assume the intelligence estimates are being changed somewhere up the chain. and now we see these military analysts saying just that. this is very dangerous. it almost turns into a propaganda machine. >> right. and if the public is being
misled and the war on isis is not going as well as we are told, what is the real situation on the ground right now in syria and iraq? >> well, we are conducting an anemic air campaign. we are not causing the kind of damage that we need to do to stop isis. isis is a strong today as it was when we started the air campaign over one year ago because they have this constant influx of new recruits and we're not striking the targets when we find them. there are oppressive rules of engagement that prevent the pilots from hitting the targets when they see them. everything has to come up the chain of command and down the chain of command and by that time the target has disappeared. the commanders in the field have to have the authority to engage the targets. but as it stands right now, isis -- stalemate is a polite term. isis has the upper hand on the ground. >> a sobering assessment there
from lieutenant colonel rick francona. as the migrant crisis expands we look at one family struggling to pay for food in jordan. that report after this break. hey pal? you ready? can you pick me up at 6:30? ah...

north of tokyo. the flooding is so widespread officials have not grasped the full extent of the flooding. japan's prime minister is weighing in on the crisis. take a listen. >> translator: there is concern that the region will see unprecedented heavy rains. the government will work as one to prioritize the safety of the people and do our best to prevent any further disaster. denmark has closed a major highway as hundreds of refugees are marching north in an effort to reach sweden. they are hoping to make it to malmo more than 200 miles away because of sweden's favorable policies on asylum seekers. denmark has cut benefits for refugees. benjamin netanyahu and david cameron will be meeting to discuss a host of bilateral issues including the iran nuclear deal.
the deal would alleviate sanctions on tehran en"in excha on concessions. an officer has been place on modified assignment. five office tackled and handcuffed a tennis star after he was misidentified as a suspect in an ongoing investigation. the incident remains under investigation. the expanding refugee crisis is pushing more people into hunger. >> in jordan alone, the world food program has had to drastically reduce its monthly food allowance. becky anderson introduces us to a family struggling to survive. >> reporter: a monthly food shop
in a supermarket. it's tough for this 45-year-old mother of seven to make ends meet. relying as she does as a syrian rflg almost wholly on assistance from the world food program. that aid has been cut in half. at $14 a month her food vouchers amount to 50 cents per day per family member. >> translator: i decreased a lot of my grocery needs. i only with oil. my son wants chicken. we keep only eating sugar and oil and we hope they don't cut our coupons. for god's sake find us a solution. i beg them not to cut the food coupons. >> reporter: her family fled their hometown in syria in 2013. fearing for their lives after the death of one of her sons and
the detention of her husband at the hands of the syrian regime. home, for now at least, is this two-room dwelling. the family is considered one of the more vulnerable with so many mouths to feed and no steady income. as such, they still qualify for assistance. but due to a lack of funding, more than 200,000 families, a third of the syrian refugees here in jordan, no longer have any food aid at all. meaning that a meal like this however meager is considered somewhat of a blessing. food insecurity amongst refugees is drastically increasing. as years go by with families like this living below the poverty line and they are reaching rock bottom. can you show me a picture of your husband?
and what happened to him? >> translator: he went to get a car license. when he was at the license department they arrested him. the government security intelligence put him in the car and took him away. i don't know what happened. >> reporter: i asked what would happen if her food assistance was cut further? >> translator: either i go back to -- or i go back to syria under the shelling and bombardment. if it wasn't for my sons i would go back to syria now. >> reporter: for now, she just appeals to the international community to not forget about their plight. becky anderson, cnn, ahman in jordan. investors in the united states are experiencing one of the wildest stock market swings in the past 25 years. that is according to a u.s. investment group that says the turbulence is like 2008. >> it was another down day on
wall street as well. the closing bell, the dow lost more than 200 points. china's slowing economy and fears of a fed rate hike is fueling volatility. >> let's look at the markets in the asia-pacific region. the nikkei and australia are closed if for day. both are down 2 1/2%. a similar story in hong kong, down 2.16%. shanghai composite losing nearly a percentage point there. we have news coming out of the region, china's premier says that his country will not result to a currency war. that is after the yuan was devalued last month. also, li is speaking out about the state of his country's slowing economy. >> translator: despite
moderation in species, performance of the chinese economy is stable and moving in a positive direct. having said that we face difficulties but we have more opportunities than challenge. is it the creativity and passion of the public that gives us confidence in overcoming the difficulties we face. we have the capability to achieve all the major targets of economic development this year and lay a solid foundation for economic growth in the future. >> that sounds optimistic. let's bring in our correspondent there. you listened to this live, andrew. and we have a bit of a satellite delay but tell us how frank the prime minister was at acknowledging problems and a sense of reaction to his address. >> reporter: he was certainly frank in acknowledging problems
using words like painful and treacherous conditions that do confront the chinese economy but he was upbeat on the actual outcome. his point is that we are going through a tough patch at the moment and we have the tools to deal with it. there will be no hard landing, those were his words. that's when the economy falls off a cliff. and when it is the second biggest economy on the planet that would be a hard landing. he says that china is a source of optimism for the global economy and they are standing by to do what they need to do and he talks about the innovation of the people. these are standard lines, innovation, inspiration, that sort of thing. but these are backed up by tools at beijing's disposal. officially the economy is growing at 7%.
unofficially it may be 5% or as low as 4%. but what he said, errol and what is key, is that we're not particularly looking at this headline number we are looking at unemployment. we are looking at whether there are enough jobs being created. if there are not enough jobs that's when we act. at the moment we created 8 million jobs up until the ninth month of this year. that is 3/4 of the target for the year. they are on target to hit that and they say everything is looking in order and it's generally positive. >> and people there certainly weren't expecting a bombshell announcement from the prime minister. but based on people you have talked with now that he has dlirdli delivered his statement are people comforted by what they heard or do they have a reason for concern? >> reporter: historically people
would tend to roll their eyes when they hear this positive language coming from beijing, r errol. it does not have a ring of authenticity about it. li addressed the crowd and delegates here in a much more direct tile. and the people i spoke to afterwards did say they thought he was pragmatic, that he was acknowledging there are issues and also acknowledging that they have the fire power to deal with them. he said as you said at the beginning of this piece there is no currency war. i don't think that's been an issue here. but that is a reassuring thing to hear. so i think the reaction has been positive. china is going through a difficult patch at the moment. it is a massive economy. growing at 7%. that is still a massive amount of growth of real hard economic
expansion in a $10 trillion economy. >> andrew stevens live for us in the world economic forum. approaching 2:40 in the afternoon there. thanks. we'll take a short break here. donald trump has launched another verbal attack at a rival and fellow republican. ahead the comments aimed at carly fiorina's looks and what she has to say about that. back in a moment.
what did iran's supreme leader get in the nuclear deal? to start with, $100 billion. they keep their nuclear facilities and ballistic missiles. there won't be surprise anytime-anywhere inspections. and after ten years, restrictions are lifted and iran could build a nuclear weapon in two months. congress should reject a bad deal. we need a better deal.
it makes it so much better to do homework when you're at home. internet essentials from comcast. helping to bridge the digital divide. . donald trump has taken a jab at the appearance of one of his rivals in the u.s. presidential race and now we're hearing from her. when speaking about republican candidate carly fiorina trump said, quote, look at that face. would anyone vote for that? can you imagine that the face of our next president and he goes on to say, i mean, she's a woman and i'm not supposed to say bad
things but come on, folks, really, are we serious? >> the comments are in the latest edition of "rolling stone" magazine. fiorina responded to the insult. >> what do you take that to mean? look at that face? >> i have no idea and i'm not going to spend a single cycle wondering what donald trump means but maybe i'm getting under his skin a little bit because i am climbing in the polls. >> a spokeswoman for the trump campaign declined to comment. people continue to pour out to see the candidate. tea partiers flooded the west lawn for a rally against the iran nuclear deal on wednesday. >> as chris moody reports, it was trump who pulled in the crowds. ♪
>> reporter: 2,000 people in front of the capital. this is remnants of the tea party instead of focusing on local economic issues it has branched out to foreign issues and in this case opposing the iran deal. >> we know to an absolute certainty if this goes through, people will die. >> this is a deal that is not meant to protect america but meant to make america more vulnerable. >> there's a lot of passion here. for some people it means the end of the world. >> i have daughters in new york city and i wouldn't want to see them nuked. >> we have heard what happened in nazi germany and obama is a very similar man to hitler. >> i'm roasting.
i'm melting. i've always said, though, sweat is my sanity. >> how do get 1,000 people to come to a rally in the middle of the afternoon on 100 degrees day. step one, invite donald trump. that's it. >> we will have so much winning when i get elected you may get bored with winning. >> if we didn't have donald trump, we would be helpless. donald has the personality to take no [ bleep ] and put down people who should have been slammed decades ago. >> he is speaking to the people and saying what we feel. >> a lot of people are here to see donald trump but so is the media. >> let's be honest if it was just senator cruz talking about substance, nobody would be here. but the second donald trump comes, there comes the sensation
lymph a allism and the media. >> people saying he represents a sliver of the republican ideology and party. >> and you see this all behind us, a big day for apple except apparently on wall street. the company stock fell 2% as the company was unveiling its latest iphones and new products. >> with a look at what apple has on tap here is samuel burke. >> this is iphone 6 s. you can pay at places like this and the color looks like this. >> the iphone is more than half of apple's rmseven so updating once a year is a must. the iphone 6 s and s plus have a faster processor, improved camera and what they call a 3-d touchibilty. you can push the screen harder or softer and different menus

rescue stranded residents of ibaraki prefecture. look at the images of people desperately waving for help just above flooded ground. >> at least 170,000 people have ordered to get to safety north of tokyo. local media report the flooding is so widespread at this stage the officials have yet to grasp the extent of the flooding. our meteorologist derek van dam is here to update us on the situation. >> there is more rain to come in that area. and looking at the aerial visuals you can see the berm that was holding the water away from the residents just burst its banks like that and you can imagine the force and torrent of water that pushed through that narrow space. horrifying for those people. but unfortunately this was a trifecta of weather patterns, and we scoured the internet for visuals to show you.
this is back on tuesday so you can see what the set up has been that led to this flooding that's just now occurred. we have this trifecta, tropical storm etau, and here is kilo and notice this cloud cover blanketing the mainland of japan that is a stationary front that has set up light drizzle and rainfall in the area adding to the rainfall totals and take etau and move that across the region and that brings more excessive rain with another tropical storm bringing rainfall to the area. this is tokyo which is the largest metropolitan area in the world. this is their wettest time of the year averaging 8 inches or 210 millimeters of rainfall. but when you are talking about roughly 15 inches of rain since 24 hours ago. and 12 inches of rain when you
normally experience well, roughly 5 to 8 inches in a normal year. you can imagine what that leads to and that is flooding. here's kilo moving in. we are orographical lift producing precipitation in the mountainous regions. we have a wet forecast on friday. but it looks as if saturday and sunday will finally start to dry out in that region and conditions should start to improve but we have a possibility of 100 more millimeters of rainfall in those areas. >> there could be landslides because of this. and we have new pictures we can show you as we follow this developing story north of tokyo. 170,000 people ordered to evacuate. i'll turn things over to rosemary who will join you after the break with more after this. >> we're back in a moment. to ac. it pushes us to go further. special olympics has almost five million athletes

we don't know that for sure. that is speculative at this point. but this person has been rescued and nearly safely taken into that helicopter. and they will continue this effort. you can see below the raging waters. this has been extraordinary. the banks of the nearby river breaking. houses have been swept away. people waving from rooftops and balconies in hope of rescue effort coming to their particular -- there are the people we talked about earlier. we understand it says these are live pictures -- these are from earlier in actual fact from ibaraki prefecture. this is where this is all playing out. and local media report the flooding is so widespread officials have yet to fully grasp the extent of the flooding. japan's weather agency warns more flooding is possible as the weather system moves north and listen as japan's prime minister weighed in on the crisis a short
time ago. >> translator: there is concern that the region will see unprecedented heavy rains. the government will work as one to prioritize the safety of the people and do our best to prevent any further disaster. taking you back to these live pictures. this is another rescue operation. we are watching as it happens on your television. joso city in japan. now we saw earlier, you can see this person, they are desperate here. the water level has raise on the the point just below their roof there. they are sitting on the roof in expectation of this helicopter hopefully approaching them very soon and lifting them off that particular roof. now, again, you're seeing this raging water, these homes have been floating by. we have will ripley joining us from tokyo. these images and live pictures are unbelievable as we watch
this rescue operation live on our televisions. >> reporter: and rosemary, i have to tell you there has been concern this may be coming since for the better part of four weeks now in japan we have been inundated with rain on an almost daily basis. the rain of course intensified with that typhoon, tropical storm etau that moved through here yesterday dumping very, very heavy rain here in toke-on-and several hundred kilometers in the north in ibaraki and tochigi prefectures where the biggest danger is right now. given the fact that tokyo is very densely populated and only 170,000 people have received the evacuation orders so far gives you a sense of the geography in this area.
it's not as densely populated as the capital. it is a more rural area but still you have a high concentration of residents around the kinugawa river. and the concern is for the elderly folks. and at least three senior citizens have received serious injuries trying to get out of the way of the rising water and because of the rising winds from the storm that moved through yesterday. the japan self-defense force has been activated and here in japan which is subject to almost every kind of natural disaster you think of from volcanic eruptions and typhoons and tsunamis, they are trained to respond to this kind of flooding. what we are seeing unfold live is a coordinated and highly trained group of individuals with the self-defense force that are identifying who is in greatest danger and pulling them from their homes and getting them to safety.
but another concern is the situation at the fukushima nuclear plant where several hours of intense rain has inundated their water pumping systems and resulted in hundreds of tons of contaminated water being released into the ocean. a lot of the contaminated water from the nuclear reactors they have been cleaning up since 2011 they are above ground in water storage containers. in addition to the immediate needs of the people there is the situation at the power plant we are watching as well. >> we have been watching these live pictures unfold simply incredible. as you say, the self-defense force in japan very well coordinated these men have landed and they are on the roof and trying to get this person on this rooftop attached so they can then be lifted by this helicopter and they are looking inside the building and we're assuming there are other people in that building. the concern is there is very
little time, clearly. the water level is rising here and this person has found some dry area to at least await this rescue operation. now, you mentioned there, will, the fukushima nuclear power plant. this is a real concern. how bad could this be? >> reporter: for quite some time here there, has been real concern about what will happen at fukushima if there is another natural disaster such as a flooding event such as this. this is not the same danger level as if you saw a tsunami after a powerful earthquake. this is an issue of the pumps set up on site being able to respond and pump that contaminated water out quickly and safely.
that's the issue that we're seeing right now. how this will affect the surrounding areas and the towns surrounding fukushima that people were just allowed back in within a matter of days, we don't know the extent of that right now. but whenever there is a weather event near fukushima which continues to be as much as the government and tp cowork to stabilize it, it's always a concern that's something we will have to watch closely. as we watch these rescues you have to think about and hope that the people who were inside those buildings were able to get out of the way. the water has risen quickly especially in the areas most affected by the flooding. and you think about the senior citizens in particular who might have difficulty moving. we hope that people got to a safe location and are being evacuated quickly. water is by far the most dangerous element in a disaster, more dangerous than winds, even more dangerous than mudslides which these areas are prone to.
but is it the water that can be the most powerful and destructive and the most dangerous. you are exactly right. will ripley there in tokyo. there was a very long delay there. but many thanks to you, will. we'll talk to you a little later. we want to stay with these live pictures from joso city in japan. this is north of tokyo. extraordinary images and terrifying as you can imagine if you are that person waiting on that roof top for help. at last it has come. they are trying to attach a safety harness to this person so they can lift this person up. they have been attached and they are being lifted to safety thankfully to this helicopter. and we heard from will. japan is extraordinary when it comes to these operations. very well coordinated. the self-defense force moves into action very quickly. they work out who they need to
go to first and they collect those people. now the concern here as will pointed out is whether people have gotten from the body of those buildings on to the highest point, the rooftop, generally or to a balcony so they can raise the alarm and these rescue crews can actually come in and collect them as well. and of course we also heard will talking about the fukushima nuclear power plant under a situation like this there is a concern about the contaminated water. and we will cover all of those elements of this three. watching here, you get an idea how extensive this is. 170,000 people evacuated from their homes. so this rescue operation is to go in to collect those people who were just not able to get out at the time of evacuation. we'll continue to follow that, of course. all right, want to get follow to the latest in the u.s.
presidential race. republican front runner donald trump is taking eat for comments he made about a republican rival. donald trump is profiled in the latest edition of "rolling stone" and in it he talks about carly fiorina's looks. he says look at that face, would anyone want to vote for that can you imagine that, the face of our next president. and he continues, she's a woman and i'm not supposed to say bad things but really, folks come on, are we serious? and fiorina responded on fox news. >> what do you take that to me, look at that face, would anyone vote for that? >> i have no idea and honestly i'm not going to spend a single cycle wondering what donald trump means but maybe i'm getting under his skin a little bit because i'm climbing in the
polls. and trump came under fire for remarks he made about megyn kelly during and after a republican debate. trump held lead a rally in washington on wednesday with strong rhetoric against the u.s. nuclear deal with iran. u.s. house lawmakers will debate three resolutions aimed at curbing the deal. republicans hope to finish voting by friday. one alleges secret side deals regarding nuclear inspections and says president barack obama broke the law by not disclosing details of the deal. a spokesman for the white house says if congress does not vote by september 17th the deal will automatically go into effect. democrats say they have enough votes to protect the agreement. demands for congress to kill the deal were loud and clear at a huge rally outside the u.s.
kpol. 2008 vice presidential candidate sarah palin and current candidates ted cruz and donald trump pulled no punches. >> we are led by very, very stupid people. very, very stupid people. >> reporter: true to form, donald trump boiled down his opposition to the iran deal to basics and blunt talk. >> they rip us off. they take our money, they make us look like fools. >> reporter: trump was invited to this an i iran rally by one of his rivals for the white house, ted cruz. >> i want to thank my friend donald trump for joining us today. >> reporter: instead of attacking trump, cruz has embraced him especially when he can help draw a crowd for a cause like this one. >> this iranian nuclear deal is catastrophic. is it the single greatest national security threat facing america. >> reporter: although they agree that the deal is bad they disagree on what to do about it.
it's a difference that divides the republican 2016 field. cruz would get rid of the deal on day one he is in office. >> any commander-in-chief should be prepared to stand up on january 20, 2017, and rip to shreds this catastrophic deal. >> reporter: trump would not can that. >> this will be a totally different deal. ripping up is always tough. we lost all our allies in the deal. they are making a lot of money. they are all selling missiles and getting involved with iran using the money we gave to iran. i will do something that will be very strong and believe me, iran will come back and they will be much different. >> if the horse is out of the barn what do you do about it? >> you just watch. >> reporter: no specifics because he doesn't want to telegraph it to the iranians. but he did make this trumpesque promise to the crowd. >> we will have so much winning if i get elected that you may
get bored with winning. believe me. >> reporter: also at the rally the woman who would like to serve in trump's presidential cabinet, sarah palin. >> only in an orwellian obama world full of spinkly fairy dust blown from atop his unicorn as he is peeking through a pretty pink kaleidoscope would he ever see victory or safety for america or israel in this treaty. >> reporter: dana bash, cnn, capitol hill. hillary clinton showed her support for the nuclear deal in a speech in washington. she said the deal should be considered a starting point when it comes to dealing with iran. listen. >> it's not enough to just say yes to this deal. of course it isn't. we have to say yes, and we will inforce it with vigor and vigilance. yes, and we will embed in the a
broader strategy to confront iran's bad behavior in the region. yes, and we will begin from day one to set the conditions so iran knows it will never be able to get a nuclear weapon. not during the term of the agreement, not after, not ever. >> u.s. secretary of state john kerry says that buildup of russian troops in syria will only make the situation there worse. syrian president bashar al assad is an ally to moscow but the u.s. wants him gone. a u.s. official monitoring the situation says russia has not provided a clear answer of its intentions. >> if true and borne out, those reports would be -- could lead to greater violence and more -- even more instability in syria and not helpful at all to what the community should be trying
to achieve inside syria. >> i'm concerned about reports about the increased russian military presence in syria. that will not contribute to solve that conflict. i think it's important to now support all efforts to find a political solution to the conflict in syria. >> a russian foreign ministry spokeswoman did not rule out additional russian actions to assist al assad's government. she said if there is a need from outside for additional measures to increase support for the anti-terrorist fight this question will be reviewed in an appropriate way. we'll take a short break right here but we'll be back in just a moment. don't go anywhere.
about 200 refugees waited in germany, many are hoping to make their way to scandinavian countries like norway and sweden. >> i'm from syria. i want to go to finland. i have come to germany now. the government here is very good. everybody is very good. so they help us so much. but i want to go to finland because i leave my family in the frontier between syria and turkey and the situation there is so dangerous. this video is from denmark where more than 200 refugees refused to get off their train for fear they might be forced to register for asylum there. police decided to let the people off the train and volunteered offered to drive them to malmo
in sweden. that country is much more welcoming to the refugees. european leaders are mulling a proposal from the eu for mandatory country by country quotas to resettle migrants. 120,000 people would be relocated from greece, hungary and italy, three countries that have been at the forefront of the crisis. that's in addition to 40,000 people the european commission agreed to relocate in may. eu countries would receive about $6700 for every person they agree to take in. and for a closer look at how european leaders are reacting to the quota plan, let's turn to our senior international correspondent atika shubert who is live in berlin. what can you tell us about the situation with the migrants there in denmark? >> reporter: well the situation with the migrants in denmark is similar a little bit to what happened in hungary where
essentially you are getting a flow of refugees trying to come across and one country basically says no we're going to enforce the law and put in border controls and register everyone, which is what the refugees do not want. they want to get to sweden which they believe is a more welcoming country. denmark is trying to impose control over the flow of people going through. but as hungary learned, it's extremely difficult to do when you're getting thousands and thousands of people coming in every day. so what we saw yesterday were these scenes of refugees refusing to get off of trains and ferries and when being let out deciding to march their way to sweden. so this is the kind of scene that we've now come to see all over the eu, frankly and why the eu is under pressure to come up with a joint asylum policy. without this policy whether or not it happens the refugees and migrants are going to come no
matter what. and so the attempt here is to try to find them places in the eu so no one country gets swamped. >> and of course we know that the -- a lot of the european countries in the east were not very happy. there was a lot of push back there. we'll look for more reaction later. atika shubert joining us from berlin. thanks to you. soon, benjamin netanyahu and david cameron will be meeting in london. the main topic of discussion, the iran nuclear deal. we'll get a live report outside number 10 downing street next. and republicans try to shut down the iran nuclear deal. those seeking the highest office in the land had the most to say. we'll show you when we come back.

and a warm welcome back to our viewers in the united states and around the world. this is "cnn newsroom." i'm rosemary church. and it is time to check the main stories we are following right now. denmark has closed a major highway as hundreds of refugees are marching north in an effort to reach sweden. they are hoping to make it to malmo because of sweden's favorable policy on asylum seekers. japan's self-defense forces have been deployed to rescue residents stranded by floods. at least 170,000 people were ordered to get to safety after rivers burst their banks north of tokyo. local media report the flooding is so widespread officials have yet to fully grasp the extent of
the flooding. and derek van dam joins me now with more on the situation. we have seen the most extraordinary pictures play out. they are so coordinated, aren't they? they are moving in and picking up the most vulnerable first. >> they have a wide range of natural disasters to deal with across japan. tsunamis, back in 2011, you have typhoons that come regularly. flooding and mudslides just like this. but look at these rescues on the screen as we speak. it's very apparent what happened here, the incessant rainfall that has been nonstop for four weeks in some parts of japan has now just succumbed to the flooding and we had river banks that just burst over. there were berms that were holding back the water and then the rainfall eventually was just too much for those sand berms and unfortunately, the aerial
footage, that is the area that burst open and leading to scenes just like this washing away houses, allowing for dramatic rescues to take place. terrifying pictures coming out of japan. but i want to show you what caused all this rainfall. this is a satellite image coming out of the region. we are talking about a trifecta of weather events. see that large blanket of cloud cover. you can't even see japan on the map. this is a stationary frontal boundary. this is storm etau that moved over the mainland earlier this week. and this is storm kilo. all of these working together to create the perfect storm for this flooding rainfall. we had etau that helped to break down the frontal boundary and it unfortunately only brought more
precipitation to this area including the greater tokyo region, north of the region where the flooding took place. september is the wettest month of the year. 8 inches or 200 millimeters of rainfall. and we easily broke records. we are talking about upwards of 15 inches of rain in a 48 hour period. here's kilo. that's going to actually just sideswipe the hokkaido region. but there are enough mountains that it will allow for more precipitation to fall, 100 to 150 millimeters in that area. additional rain is possible north of tokyo which could lead to more landslides, flooding and rivers bursting its banks like this one. >> and they have to deal with so much like this in japan. >> there is a drying trend for the second half of the weekend. >> many thanks to you, derek.
next hour, israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu will meet with british prime minister david cameron in london to discuss a host of bilateral issues which could the iran nuclear deal. and joining me now nic robertson and cnn correspondent oren lieberman. let's go nic first. there is no guarantee they will cover the iran nuclear deal. so how is this likely to play out? >> reporter: well, regional issues, bilateral issues are the broad descriptions that we've heard. there is not sort of a formal agenda of topics we have been talking about. netanyahu is still feeling that this is the deal with iran is the wrong move. when he comes to britain, britain is rekindling relationships very quickly with
iran. they just opened their embassy in iran within the last few weeks. so you know, that is perhaps not a topic of conversation where they're going to see entirely eye to eye. but you can expect the issue of radical islam in the region and how it affects europe and the migrant issue and security in the middle east, the situation in syria is certainly on david cameron's mind. he feels tougher action should be taken on syria. business issues as well will likely come up. the israeli prime minister while he's here has met already with members of the jewish community and will meet with british mps while he's here as well. the range of topics might be quite broad however probably not if you will, such a friendly ear on the iran deal.
>> let's go to oren lieberman in jerusalem. what are the expectations of benjamin netanyahu as he meets with the british prime minister. >> prime minister benjamin netanyahu has had the iran deal as his number one issue now for months. he has been quiet lately. he normally issues statements every day against the deal. and he will keep doing this even though he knows he lost the fight against the deal and it looks like the deal will go through. when he got to london he warned not only the uk but also the u.s., europe and the middle east about the dangers of this deal. even now he pushes against the deal. the only difference we have seen in the last couple of weeks is that he has only slightly begun to focus on what happens after the deal in terms of military aid packages with the united states. and netanyahu is opposed to the deal even though at this point
it seems obvious that the deal will go through. on this end he will fight this to the very end, it seems. >> oren lieberman thanks to you. u.s. presidential candidates donald trump and ted cruz joined forces and slammed the deal at a rally on wednesday. u.s. lawmakers have postponed a debate on the iran agreement saying the white house hasn't been transparent enough. calls for congress to kill the deal were loud and clear on wednesday. >> if this deal goes through we know to an absolute certainty people will die. americans will die, israelis will die, europeans will die. any commander-in-chief worthy of defending this nation should be prepared in january 2017 to look in the eye of the ayatollah and
say under no circumstances does iran, led by a thee cattic ayatollah who chants "death to america" under no circumstances will iran be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons. >> never, ever, ever in my life have i seen any transaction so incompetently negotiated as our deal with iran. we are led by very, very stupid people. very, very stupid people. they take our money. they make us look like fools. and now they're back to being who they really are. they've don't want israel to survive. they will not let israel survive with incompetent leadership like we have right now. >> cnn political commentator
peter binehart joins me now to talk about this deal. can we assume this is a done deal in congress at this point? >> reporter: i think so. the only real question is whether the president will have to veto the bill. if he does, it's clear in the house and the senate he has enough support to sustain that veto. >> so what is the likely republican strategy now and could this deal be stopped or sabotaged in any way? >> reporter: i think republicans are going to try to use this as a political issue to rally their conservative base to try to make inroads in the american jewish community though that is unlikely to succeed. they may look for opportunities to unravel the deal down the line by trying to pass new sanctions or to try to do other things to make the iranians
think we are not trying to live up to our side of the bargain. but the more serious people in the republican party realize it will not be undone. and even though we have this deal we don't develop a -- with iran, that we maintain a cold war posture vis-a-vis iran even after the deal. >> and there has been a lot of talk about after this deal, iran could possibly be brought in to help end the war in syria. but today, or yesterday, we should say, iran's supreme leader said this, and i am quoting, we approved talks with the united states about the nuclear issue specifically. we have not allowed talks with the u.s. in other fields and we will not negotiate with them. he went on to say there would be no israel in 25 years. the israeli prime minister says supporters of this deal are fooling themselves when it comes to iran's intentions. does he have a point?
>> well, the supreme leader also said he would not allow any deal which allowed for any restrictions on iran's nuclear program more than 10 or 12 years and we have a 15-year restriction on uranium enrichment and 25-year oversight on the uranium mills in mind. i would read this with a grain of salt. what you're seeing on both sides is because of domestic political concerns it doesn't mean a fundamental change in the relationship between the united states and iran but it's if this ghastly civil war in syria is ever to end it will be because of negotiations that include iran, russia, the united states, and america's sunni allies. that's the only way this war will end. >> and speaking of israel, where does this deal's all but certain
approval leave israel on the world stage? the israeli prime minister will be at number 10 downing street in the coming hours. >> reporter: benjamin netanyahu picked a fight that realistically he could not win and now he looks bad in israel because he has lost it. but in reality, israel will get a generous -- new generous security guarantees, military guarantees from the united states. most people in the israel security establishment agreed that iran was a threat in the first place. and israel will be back in a situation in which it has serious threats to deal with. hezbollah, hamas and the broader problem of people in the west bank who lack citizenship. i don't think the reality will be different than today. >> peter beinart thank you for your analysis.

surpassed the expectations of the market. the launch of the new apple television is an interesting product and shows apple playing in a field that has traditionally been shelved to them. while the market hasn't responded unanimously in praising the launch but it is better than we expected. >> that's interesting. you think it surpassed expectations. but of course, steve jobs was a leader and innovator and some critics have suggested that this launch was neither. what could this mean for apple going forward, do you think? >> i think apple is a company, to some extent, at a crossroads playing in multiple fields now. they obviously have experienced huge amount of growth with the iphone generation. what they need to do now is work out where they're going to go now moving forward. we at mind share see the
connected world as the third wave of digital. they played in desktop and mobile and wearables and the connected home and the internet of things is going to be where apple need to make their next splash. >> steve jobs was never a fan of the stylus and here we see the apple pencil rolled out. what does that signal to you? >> to me it signals the fact that when you're rolling out a larger tablet, as apple are with the ipad pro, you to some extent need to develop tools to allow you to make better use of it. we are seeing competitors roll out stylus style tools and keyboards and kick stands. it's adding to the arsenal of tools if you are going to use the tablet as an enterprise solution. i see the ideal use case for the
stylus or the apple pencil being mainly with children and with students versus professionals. i can't imagine professionals in the design community jumping on to it particularly quickly. >> neil bruce, many thanks, appreciate it. still to come here at cnn, the people at guinness recognize world records for some unusual things. you don't want to miss this one. i'm only in my 60's. i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out
